Barnsley Beer Festival kicks off on Friday from noon.
The event, which will feature more than 70 real ales, is based at the Elsecar Heritage Railway.
The theme, topically, is the LNER (London and North Eastern Railway), so expect beers from near and far.
The location is also very handy transport-wise, about ten-minutes (steepish) downhill from Elsecar Railway Station. It's on the Leeds/Huddersfield to Sheffield line, but check the timetable first to make sure it's a stopping service.
Alternatively, take the frequent 66 bus from Barnsley Interchange, which I think drops you outside the venue.
The festival runs until 7PM on Bank Holiday Monday.
Good luck to everyone at Barnsley CAMRA and thank you to Nigel Croft (and the BFH) for providing the poster image.
